My "Sex in the City" Top

My last top for the "Over The Top" challenge was supposed to be Simplicity 2254 in a pale peach mystery fabric...
Well that didn't happen and there is no wadder to show! It was such a total bust, I had to trash the darn thing!  I'm not feeling bad about it because I had another lined up to work on I was excited to get to it!  There's no pattern for this one, I drafted it from an inspiration piece I saw online at for $685!!   I'm going on a "Sex in the City" girls night out and was searching for something to inspire me, well the Saks top did it, but there's no way I can afford that price!  Thank goodness I know how to sew! 

 I found this beautiful piece of stretch silver lame at JoAnn one day while shopping with a friend and thought it matched a pair of chrome sandals I've had for a while. My first thought was how cool these (the shoes & top) would be together with a pair of rhinestone jeans I have and sure enough, it worked! This top was such a simple one to create...there wasn't much to it, most of the work was searching for the right material and I lucked up on that!

(I should have pulled it down in the back, please excuse my wrinkles!) I really like how I was able to bring the side ruffle up just high enough to show a tiny peek of skin above the waistband of my jeans, I think it's so sexy but not to much!! (don't want to show any rolls now do I, LOL!!)

This is really a fun top and I'm sure I'll make another is a less fancy fabric! It would make a cute little summer tank!
